Hands down the best mod at Walt Disney World. It has it's own bus service which makes it even better! The resort itself is beautiful as are the grounds and rooms. My room was just gorgeous and my bed so comfortable - I loved it! Rooms are equipped with spacious bath areas, coffee makers and fridges which are great for all those leftover dinners or snacks! I spent 6 nights here in bldg. 2 (which I certainly will request next time I go also!) Only had a 5 minute walk to the Main Lobby area, restaurants, gift shops etc and buses...5 out of 5 stars in my book!

Room Tip: I was on the top floor and it was extremely quiet up there!

Enjoyed my 6 day stay the Fench Quarter Hotel. Though it is rather sprawling, it is smaller than a lot of the other hotels and is a good value, especially withthe dining plan. The buses are a convenient way to get around. Rooms are nice size and well appointed with a small fridge and nice flat screen TV. Beds were a bit soft. Staff is friendly and helpful. I am going back in a few months and will be staying here again. One small glitch - the on site airline desk misdirected my bag mainly because the was a big crowd checking out that day. Make sure they label it in front of you before you move away.

Room Tip: Ask for a room on ground floor that is close to transportation.

This may be our favorite Disney Resort. We really love the entertainment in the Scat Kat Lounge. The rooms are comfortable and Disney does a good job of giving a New Orleans flavor to this resort. We love walking around looking at the details in the buildings. There are a lot of those special features at this resort.

But remember this is considered a Moderate Resort. It isn’t as fancy or as nice as the Delux Resorts.

We have at one point or another stayed at each of the Disney hotels. The Port Orleans FRENCH QUARTER is one of our favorites and is the smallest of the moderate priced Disney hotels. Therefore it feels less crowded and more relaxing than any of the others. This also makes it easy and quick to get to buses. This stop on the bus route is the first to get on and the first to get off on its way to the parks. So you can usally get a seat even during busy periods. The bus then runs through the larger riverside area of the resort and fills to the standing room only. There is a fun party feel to the resort with the New Orleans theme. The kids love the pool area with is sea-serpent waterslide. There are also hot tubs very nice when the weather is cool. The food court offers a nice variety and wonderful made to order beignets. A nice bonus is the boats that take you directly to Downtown Disney for a meal or shopping. Each resort offers a different experience. If you are looking to get away from the crowds for some peace and quiet the FRENCH QUARTER of Port Orleans is a good place to retreat to. Do not get it confused with the Port Orleans Riverside which is larger, busy and last to get on the bus!

French Quarter is a great place to stay. Stayed there over the Veteran's Day holiday with family. As always, Disney obliged to our special room request near transportation, ground floor. This hotel was recently remodeled and all the rooms are freshly painted and feature new furnishings.

The room we stayed in was spotless! It was immaculately clean. If someone had told me that nobody had ever stayed in there before us, I would have believed it! Honestly, I've never seen such a clean hotel room. Outstanding.

The rest of the campus was clean as well save the rubbish left behind by piggy people who can't be bothered to dump their empty soda cups in a waste basket less than a foot away from their tables but hey, they're on vacation right? Probably upset no Disney employee popped out of the bushes to throw it out for them when they drank that last drop!

The food selection was the only downside. It was pretty grote. The soup was salty and breakfast was extremely greasy. Not a lot of vegetarian options either. I know, I know. Us vegetarians should just stay home and eat grass and let the meat eaters live in peace. But hey I'm sure your cholesterol would appreciate one or two less mickey mouse shaped hamburgers while on vacation. Just a suggestion Mickey. I know you have that space-aged green house over in Epcot and all. Just sayin'.

The cast members were all very nice, courteous and helpful. None of those vacant stares some people get when you ask them a question. "Oh no a customer! Quick! Act like I'm mentally incapable of grasping the point of their inquiry!"

At FQ you can hop on a little ferry boat and it takes you to Downtown Disney, a giant gift shop with restaurants. I enjoyed taking the ferry. You better get ready to wait at least 30-45 minutes to get on one though because the queue is long. No, I'm not British, I just enjoy saying queue. It is much funner than saying line. Also, the fairy boat makes a loud , piercing honking sound so get ready for that!

Bus transportation is super convenient, especially to Magic Kingdom because as you know, the Kingdom is on an Island or something and you traditionally have to schlep over from the parking lot on a ferry or the monorail (more hideously long queues that make you want to stab yourself and others). So with a bus, TA-DA! They magically dump you off right at the front gates of the Magic Kingdom. Totally worth the $bazillion a night to stay at a Disney property because I hate to stand in a queue. It's bad enough you have to do that all day to get on rides, right? Why stand in a queue to get to the park? There are kids screaming about how they want to see Mickey Mouse, dad's drinking out of tiny liquor bottles, pining for a weekend golfing with their co-workers in accounting, mom's crying silently into their handbags. Yep. Not a pretty picture. You'll probably experience that on the bus too but you'll be sitting down and moving so you'll be less aggravated.

Paying for a "river view" room is a waste of money. Don't get had! This is a tiny resort and a great deal of the rooms are away from the Sassagoula (or whatever the river is called...) so I don't even know where exactly the river view rooms are. But at any rate, what, are you staying in your room all day, glued to the chair, watching the ferry boats roar by with their loud honking? Is that what you went to Disney for? Save the money for one of the 25,000 gift shops at each of the parks. You can get a replica of the monorail and make little plastic disney characters stand in queues at home or you can buy a Mulan shaped candy bar. Yeah! Save that cash! There's a gift shop that takes up half the theme park at Magic Kingdom. You don't need a river view room or to save money for medical emergencies. Just slap a Jafar band-aid on that cracked skull. $14.99 for 7.

FQ boats a pretty landscape, an arcade, a pool with some serpentine creature jutting out of it. It's a great little place to stay. And if you get bored of your hotel like the entitled, fickle Americans that we all are, you can always wander over to Riverside next door to see if the grass is greener. We didn't wander over there ourselves. If you stay at FQ, you're first to get dropped back home after a long day at the theme parks getting sunburned , screamed at by ungrateful children, taken for every red nickel you have and then told that Magic Kingdom is a DRY PARK.

FQ offers great value and cleanliness. Unlike some of the other expansive properties, you don't have to leave a trail of breadcrumbs to help you find your car when you leave. Not like Coronado for instance. Sheesh. Somewhere on the trek between the parking lot and their room, some family ended up like the Donner party. You can also get one of those $14 souvenir cups you can refill your soda endlessly with during your stay at the resort. I think the cups are uh, the same for all the resorts and uh, I'm pretty sure that uh, maybe, they uh, don't change them. Ahem.

Room Tip: Don't pay extra for views. It isn't worth it. Save that money for chachkas.

My Father In Law booked this hotel for us for my honeymoon. When we got there, there were teenagers in the halls (around 10pm) being loud and yelling down to other rooms. Of course, our room was right next to them. We could hear them all night and the next morning. Running up and down the outside walkway from room to room. I have no idea when they actually slept.

Luckily, the next night they were gone. It was nice, but not very fancy, as I would have expected from a Disney hotel...

We didnt really get a chance to explore much more of it, as we were only there for 2 days. It was ok though.
